I really hope The Cube will significantly improve the dull and crude look of the area. The design isn't beautiful or anything, but it at least has somethig interesting and playful about it. There might be pretty reflections on its glass facade, when the sun is shining. It will be a nice contrast to all the surrounding grey stone blocks.

This project is waiting for its permission to build for over a year now.
There hasn't been a report about the granting of the permission
but there are some activities to be seen on the construction site since two days which kind of look like a start of the construction.
Hopefully there will be some good news in the next days/weeks concerning the permission.

It's actually quite funny to me that, instead of slowly erasing the toxic part of the DDR's architectural heritage (which is probably the majority of East Berlin), architects are doing their best to build new buildings that blend well with it. It honestly doesn't make any sense at all.

Should architects then ask member of skyscrapercity if they agree with their idea of beauty before starting a new project?

As a matter of fact, yes, or should I say, they should ask the people of Berlin what they think of buildings that are being built in their city. I doubt many of them would be supportive of this building.
I'm sick of this attitude that the architects are the ones important in the process of creating and building a new building. They're simply not. They are here to make well-designed buildings that people can like and find comfort and coziness in. As long as the architects have the support from people like you, they will continue to behave like omnipotent divas and mediocrity in architecture will thrive.

Architects have *always* behaved like omnipotent divas. In a way, that's part of the job. That will never change.

But they have to back it up with their designs, and a large chunk of them can't.

I'm sick of people making statements like "half of a city should be erased just because I would like to have more modern buildings in it".

Did I say that? A city is always developing, it can never be finished. I would like to see Berlin's uglier buildings demolished, but it won't happen overnight. What I said is that nobody should defend mediocrity in architecture, simple as that.

No. They served their rulers and employers. Which used to have the intention to impress and please the public. That sense of "serving the public" was lost at some point in the 20th century and has to be regained.
